Research

Research is used to increase your production in certain buildings or to increase the effectivness of your army. You need to contruct mage towers in order to start researching. On the resarch screen select the ability you want to research. Mage towers need a lot of gold for research, so be careful when managing your gold. If you see your gold levels drop, you can reduce the gold usage of mage towers to anything between 0 and 100%. Each mage tower produces 1 research point. Research points are used to complete research levels. For the first level you only need 10 points, but consequent levels will need more and more points, so you have to be careful what you research, because once the level is completed it cannot be changed and the cost of next level will be higher.

You can research the following technologies:

Military Research
  • attack points - each level increases your attack power by 1%
  • defense points - each level increases your defense power by 1%
  • thief strength - each level causes your thieves' defense, attack and damage done to increase by 1%
  • catapults strength - each level causes your catapults defense, attack strength and damage done to increase by 1%
  • military loss - each level reduces your military losses during battle by 1% (this research is limited to 50 levels)
  • conquered land - each level increases the amount of land conquered in battles by 1%
  • army upkeep cost - each level reduces the cost of army upkeep (food and gold) by 1%
  • army training - each 50 levels allows you to train an additional unit in your town center or fort simultaneously (in addition to the normal 2 units)
Production Research
  • food production - each level increases your hunters and farms production by 1%
  • wood production - each level increases your wood cutters production by 1%
  • mine production - each level increases your gold mines and iron mines production by 1%
  • weapons and tools production - each level increases your weaponsmiths and tool makers production by 1%. Consumption stays the same.
  • wine production - each level increases your wineries production by 1%
  • horse production - each level increases your stables production by 1%
Other Research
  • space effectivness - your warehouse space is increased by 5% and house space is increased by 5%
  • fort space - your forts and town centers can hold 1% more units for each research level
  • markets - you can sell/aid/buy 10% more goods
  • explorers - explorers find 1% more land
